NY2LA: Coaches see Terrence Lewis

MEQUON, Wisc. -- Terrence Lewis, a native of Milwaukee, was one of the local names at the NY2LA Summer Jam that was trailed by college coaches this week.

A number of college coaches were focused on 2017 wing Terrence Lewis at the NY2LA Summer Jam this week.

Playing with Playground Elite, Lewis showed a tough and aggressive game. Lewis did majority of his damage at the basket, as he attacked the rim, made plays in transition and finished well inside.


“It’s going good so far,” Lewis said of July. “I’m just trying to work on my game and develop to where I want to be at. I’m just going to keep working out all day everyday.”

Lewis, a standout at Milwaukee (Wisc.) Riverside, has zeroed in on a certain aspect of his game that he wants to improve.

“Something that I know I need to keep working on is my ball handling,” Lewis said. “There are times when I have an open break and I try to get points and the ball slips out of my hands. That’s the thing I’m working on the most, my ball handling.”

Marvin Menzies, Steve Prohm, Richard Pitino, Steve Wojciechowski, John Groce and Dana Altman were among the head coaches that stopped by to see him, as did a number of assistant coaches.

“The whole recruiting process is going good so far,” Lewis said. “There are a lot of coaches calling me. I’m blessed to have these college coaches on my side.”

“The schools recruiting me the hardest are IllinoisXavierIowa StateAuburn, Miami and that’s it mostly I’m planning to take visits in the summer,” he added.

Although Lewis hasn’t set any visit dates, he does known which schools he wants to see.

“I’m going to visit UNLVOregon, Xavier, Iowa State and Miami probably or Illinois again,” Lewis said.

Lewis told Scout that at this stage he doesn’t have a leader or a timetable for making his college decision.
